2:33am
is taking care of them at no charge is guiding them through the system. and they are saying that it's unlikely they are going to talk until all the criminal proceedings are through. you can imagine they still have a lot to get through physically, and emotionally. and they've read brief statements from them in which all three of the young ladies were thanking everyone for their support but saying we need time to gather ourselves, and eventually reconnect with all of our family members, and friends. john? >> we certainly hope they get every bit of the time they need. susan candiotti in cleveland for us. thanks so much. and now a cnn exclusive, pedro and onil castro breaking their silence about their brother ariel and the unspeakable crimes he allegedly committed. pedro and onil were initially arrested along with their brother for the kidnapping of amanda berry, michelle knight and gina dejesus. even though they were quickly cleared by police the brothers tell cnn's martin savidge they're feeling very much like victims, too.

2:37am
northern nevada. his lawyers call him a model inmate. >> it's common in the prison for there to be different factions that don't get along with each other, and because of his status as a celebrity, and his personality, he's sometimes mediates between different groups when they're having conflicts. >> reporter: simpson is now hoping his new legal team will spring him from prison for good. and he is serving a long sentence, 9 to 33 years, john. >> it's been 4 1/2 years or so since anyone has seen o.j. i mean, what do his lawyers say he's like these days? >> well, they say o.j. is noticeably arthritic. they say he has turned gray. he's a little bit heavier. they say he is sort of slow of movement but he's still, they say, rather sharp. so i'll see all of this when he takes the witness stand possibly wednesday of this week. >> that will be fascinating. paul vercammen in las vegas, thanks so much, paul. appreciate it.

[ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®.
2:39am
xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious,
2:40am
and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. the wright brothers became the first in flight.

some with tea party or patriot in their names, that had applied for tax exempt status. despite protests by these groups, the irs had previously denied any unfair targeting. there's absolutely no targeting. this is the kind of back and forth that happens when people apply. >> reporter: the irs now says its quote, senior leadership, was not aware of the special scrutiny at the time of that hearing. but with the results of the audit about to become public the agency now says officials were just trying to deal with the large influx of new tax exempt requests. quote, mistakes were made initially but they were in no way due to any political or partisan rationale. we fixed the situation last year. white house press secretary jay carney says the president expects swift and appropriate steps to address any misconduct if it is found. >> what we know about this is of concern. and we certainly find the actions taken as reported to be inappropriate.

story for you. bangladesh wages could soon rise after last month's building chance at a garment factory that killed more than 1100 workers. our christine romans has been following this story. >> we are addicted to cheap clothes in the u.s. and europe and those clothes by and large come from bangladesh and if you doubled the wages of those workers, it would add just a few cents to the price of your apparel. that's according to a uk union group. as it stands textile workers in bangladesh are paid $38 a month. wages last rose back in 2010. in china for example a textile worker makes $138 a month. those cheap wages mean cheap clothes for a voracious american and european market addicted to fashion but after that factory collapse last month in dhaka american retailers are facing consumers who are furious over the conditions under which clothes are made. that rubble, that rubble, there's a direct connection from that rubble to the hangers in your closet. bangladesh textile minister said that the government's going to start talks with labor groups
3:25am
and factory owners about raising wages for those garment workers. factory owners don't want to do it. they don't want to raise wages. an eu trade commissioner calls this whole system modern slavery. others say working in a clothing factory is the best, only option for women in bangladesh because they have no alternative. in many cases these women have to borrow money to get money from their next paycheck just to make it through so just really low wages. the eu has warned bangladesh to make its factories safer or risk access to the uk market. that's where most of the clothes for bangladesh go. 98% of american clothing comes from overseas. and bangladesh is rising quickly among the top exporters to the u.s. right after china and vietnam. bangladesh's clothing industry is booming so much the contract to overtake china within the next seven years. so a lot of consumers -- >> that's outrageous. >> i know. i was just in h&m over the weekend, and every single shirt i saw, $15, $14, $13, made in
3:26am
bangladesh. and i was watching women looking at these labels just like i was, and all of them putting the shirts right back on -- >> i appreciate you raising awareness about that. i really appreciate it. >> this is commencement season and the class of 2013 has a better chance than any of the last four years to get a job. that's good news. >> give us the bad news? >> i want to give everybody one piece of advice if you've got a college senior, if you are a college senior, please google yourself and start planning for social media. recruiters and hiring management are telling me they're not giving job offers based on what they're seeing on social media. >> do you know who has given a big time commencement address in the last week or so? >> me. i was out of state this weekend. it was really fun. >> congratulations to all of them. best of luck. >> 26 minutes after the hour. coming up on "early start" more of cnn's exclusive interview with ariel castro's brothers. why they say they feel like victims now, too.

3:31am
they happened to be driving on seymour avenue in cleveland last week when officers were about to storm suspected kidnapper ariel castro's home. so they broke out a cell phone camera and began rolling on the final chapter of a ten-year horror story. susan candiotti is live from cleveland for us this morning. susan, these two young women have quite a story to tell. >> oh, yeah. and imagine the timing of all this. unfortunately, as they started to roll their cell phone, their battery died. so the video doesn't last very long but what they captured was fascinating. you get to see for the first time the police officers could be verging on the house, going inside to rescue the two victims who were still inside, gina and michelle, and this was just after the two women who arrived on the scene and drove up saw amanda berry standing outside holding her little girl. listen to what she had to say. >> seen amanda walking down the street with a cop, and right
3:32am
when the cop asked her who are you, she passed us and said amanda berry. >> which i saw it in her eyes and i knew it was really her. and she had tears coming down her face. >> and they'll always remember that moment. they have the special video, and they were there to see all of this happen. to be there, to watch history unfold, as you said, zoraida. >> yeah, to document it. however short that video is, they have documented history. ariel castro, we know $8 million bond. he is sitting in jail right now. what is next for him? >> well, the grand jury, of course, will be meeting to consider charges against him. we're waiting to see whether the prosecutor, for example, will move forward with those aggravated murder charges involving what michelle knight said happened to her, that she became pregnant five times, each time she said ariel castro starved her for at least a couple of weeks, and then punched her in the instrument ack to cause miscarriages. and under ohio law, he could be
3:33am
charged for murder because of that. >> makes you sick to your stomach every time you hear that. susan, thank you very much. >> and now the interview you will only see on cnn. pedro and onil castro, breaking their silence about their brother ariel and the unspeakable crimes he allegedly committed. you'll remember pedro and onil were both initially taken into custody along with their brother for the kidnappings. in this cnn exclusive, they tell our martin savidge they are feeling very much like victims, too, now. even though they were quickly cleared by police. >> i want this to be true. like i said earlier i want to wake up out of this nightmare. >> i want to say that i don't want to be hunted down like a dog for a crime that i did not commit. i don't want to be locked up in my house because somebody out there is going to do harm to me.
3:34am
>> see the entire exclusive interview with pedro and onil castro this morning at 7:00 eastern time on "starting point." including the final words that ariel castro said to each of his brothers in jail last week, including just amazing details about what these two brothers saw in that house over the last ten years. >> i spoke with victor perez, a chief assistant prosecutor of cleveland about that very specific thing. the fact that they released those two men. i said is there any possibility that you would take them back into custody? he said absolutely not, we have no evidence to suggest that they had anything to do with this. 34 minutes pa the hour. massive house fire in pottsville, pennsylvania, claimed the lives of two adults, four children. take a look at that fire. this was sunday night. a neighbor alerted police that people may be trapped inside that house but the fire had already engulfed the people. no word on what caused that fire. a developing story that we're following. a good samaritan is in extremely critical condition this morning

after getting attacked by a group of teen agers while trying to break up a fight. police in huntington beach, california, say between 5 and 10 teen agers used their skateboards as weapons, going after the 25-year-old man saturday at a local skate park. the victim trying to flee into a nearby laundromat but the group followed him, and continued attacking him. four juvenile suspects are under arrest, charged with attempted murder. police say more arrests could be coming soon. his playing career and criminal trials are both the stuff of legends. in just a few hours o.j. simpson will be back in court in las vegas, asking for a new trial. simpson was sent to prison in 2008 for his part in the armed robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers. he claims he was improperly represented by his former attorney and he says now the conviction should be thrown out. cnn's paul vercammen is following the story for us live this morning in las vegas. good morning, paul. >> good morning, john. when simpson calls into court
3:36am
he's 65 years old now, almost 66. this lawyers say that he's a little slower in his movements and he's arthritic, and in this case, he is going to take the stand. these are the last images of o.j. simpson in public, being led out of a las vegas courtroom to prison in late 2008. simpson was convicted of kidnapping and armed robbery for leading armed men into a hotel room to try to settle a dispute over sports memorabilia he wanted back. >> we were just robbed at gunpoint by o.j. simpson. >> reporter: simpson was secretly recorded during the confrontation, which became part of the 2008 trial testimony. >> [ bleep ] still [ bleep ] out here. >> reporter: simpson's new lawyers will argue their client was so horribly represented in that kidnapping trial, he deserves a new trial and freedom. >> we firmly believe he did not get a fair trial. i think that's going to bear out during the hearing. we want the judge to take a fresh look at this, what should have been presented, what wasn't presented, what was said, what
3:37am
wasn't said. >> reporter: simpson is expected to take the witness stand this week, something he never did in the las vegas kidnapping trial, or his sensational televised trial in 1995. where he was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife nicole brown simpson and her friend ronald goldman. other witnesses expected this week are now retired prosecutors in the las vegas case, and yale gallant her, simpson's lead attorney in the kidnap trial and a former ally. simpson's new lawyers will argue that gallanter has a conflict of interest in part because of his business dealings with the football star. simpson has been housed at the lovelock correctional center in northern nevada. his lawyers call him a model inmate. >> it's common in the prison for there to be different factions that don't get along with each other, and because of his status as a celebrity, and his personality, he's sometimes mediates between different groups when they're having
3:38am
conflicts. >> reporter: simpson is now hoping his new legal team will spring him from prison for good. and simpson was sentenced from 9 to 33 years. his lawyers will also argue that that sentence was rather excessive. >> it will be fascinating to see him in court, paul, because as you said, 4 1/2 years since any of us had a glimpse of him. what can you tell us about his new representation? >> this is interesting, because, as you know, o.j. has had just some absolutely over-the-top internationally known attorneys. and his new lawyer is rather reserved. she's a judge pro temp. she's been a prosecutor and a defense attorney and you'll see that she has a rather understated style compared to some of the more bombastic things we've seen in the court in the past from o.j. simpson's attorneys. >> different sort of lawyer for him. paul vercammen, thanks. 38 minutes past the hour. attorneys for james holmes will ask a judge today to change their client's plea to not guilty by reason of insanity.th
